WestJet is dropping several routes from Halifax this winter.

The Calgary-based carrier will cease flights between Halifax and Montreal as of October 28.

Flights between Halifax and Sydney, NS will be suspended from November 15 and Halifax and Ottawa and Halifax and St. The service routes between John’s NL will end on January 8 and January 10 respectively.

The airline said non-stop flights from Halifax to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto will continue throughout the winter season.

On Nov. 15, WestJet flights between Fredericton and Toronto, Charlottetown and Toronto, and Quebec City and Toronto will also be suspended, as confirmed earlier this summer.

“We understand this is disappointing news and we apologize for any disruption to our guests and communities,” WestJet Chief Commercial Officer John Weatherill said in a statement.

The company said affected customers have been informed of the route suspensions and can book alternative travel arrangements or receive a refund.

There is no word yet on when service of the discontinued routes will resume as WestJet continues to weigh the company’s growth against cost-competitive sources and fleet growth.

Weatherill said the decision was difficult but would help in the long run as the airline shifts its eastern routes to sun and leisure destinations.

Earlier this summer, WestJet announced plans to focus future investments on Western Canada, where it holds the majority of its market share.
